Like Ron, I still use the “pen to paper” motto as well. I use a 3×5 sheet of folded paper to write my grocery lists on; write my list of songs that I lead on the Lord’s Day; write the library class schedule down when I substitute in the public school libraries; jot down ideas and thoughts for future blog articles.
How do I organize myself? Usually through the use of lists written on a 3×5 sheet of lined paper that I carry with me. Grocery lists and lists of the daily classes coming into a school library, are usually pretty detailed lists. Plus, if I get an idea for a blog article, I can quickly write it down before I forget it! 🙂
The last thing that I forgot (senior moment), was the location of a Scripture that I was referring to in Bible class on Sunday. In fact, no one in the class could find it either, so I didn’t feel too bad about it. Found it later by using http://www.just1word.com/bible_search?phrase=transformed.
It’s the simple things in life that many times frustrates us as we get older.
The last congregation that I visited was the Northside congregation here in El Paso. I was impressed with the young man (30+ years) who conducted the adult Bible class on Proverbs chapter 1. He was very knowledgeable of his subject matter and asked the class some penetrating questions that caused us to actually think. It was a refreshing class to say the least.
Saturdays are like any other day for me. Whatever needs to be done is done. This morning, I’ll go grocery shopping, get my song list ready for the song service tomorrow, write and post another article to my blog, study my adult Bible class lesson to present tomorrow morning, and walk my dog (or rather she walks me!) :).
My most useful gift was a Dickson Bible that my wife and father-in-law gave me on Christmas Day in 1981. It contains many Bible helps that today’s cheaper Bibles do not have. I’ve used it very extensively in Bible class teaching.
